“I came to Columbus after apprenticing with a puppet theater in Vermont. In my mind I had hoped to help bring a different idea of puppets with light, love, laughter and collaboration as the main components. I soon after met Heidi at a sci-fi puppet challenge where I was asked to participate and immediately become infatuated with her work.
“Open Heart creatures are artistic, expressful, whimsical experiences. Open Heart Creatures are my confidence boosters. Every time I put on a body puppet, my confidence increases and my love and passion for life increases! Open Heart creatures have changed my life forever!”
“Openheartcreatures are a surprise reminder to explore, create, challenge, laugh, dance, and play. they are a gentle nudging towards greater self-expression, judgment-free communication, and open understanding. they are a moment of uninhibited love, and random kindness. as a parent, openheartcreatures inspire my daughter and i to learn and laugh at the same time. we ♥ openheart!”

“They are the bomb and they mean everything”
“To me, Openheartartcreature body puppets are a delight to see and be around and experience. Sheer joy and uplift.”
“When I first saw them I thought they were the accumulation of every imaginary friend….childhood far away place….and dream. They are, to me, what we are taught as adults to not believe in anymore. They are wonderful.”
